Surrender to God’s Bigger Dream

You’ve made it to Day 22 of your 40 days of surrender!!!

Today God is instructing us to “Dust off Our Dreams.”

What dreams do you have that yet to be fulfilled? Don’t give up hope but keep hoping in the Lord. As long as your dreams are His dreams, they WILL come to pass.

Since 2010 I’ve surrendered to God’s bigger dream and what He’s done in such a short amount of time is blowing my mind. I’ve always been a dreamer, but the dream I had for myself was nice and manageable. I dreamed of operating a multi-service private practice, a one stop shop so to speak. But when I heard God call me out of my familiar to His new territory, I moved out of my BETTER to receive His BEST.

God’s best is available to you as well! This morning on the Morning Prayer call God had me to share this message:

                           “This cycle I am calling you to an assignment that is bigger than you.”

Will you accept the call? Will you embrace God’s bigger dream? Yes, the assignment is overwhelming. Yes it’s bigger than you! But that’s the point. If you could do it in your own strength who would get the glory? Certainly not God.

So during the 4th week of fasting “repent and say ‘yes’ to the bigger dream God has for you” (Minister Franklin Davis, Morning Prayer Call). Although you may feel overwhelmed by the magnitude of God’s dream remember that His grace is sufficient for you (see 2 Corinthians 12:9).

I would love to hear from you. What assignment has God called you to that is bigger than you? Please respond below.

(For me it’s doing the Prayer Call. LISTEN HERE to the 10/7/13 recording to learn more.)

With God all things are possible,
Dr. Celeste

  1. I can certainly attest to the fact that where God is calling me to and where I thought I’d be are two different places. I definitely believe God is calling me to do something that’s bigger than me and what I’ve dreamt for myself. I definitely know it’s God because what he’s doing and how he’s doing it are most assuredly not how ‘I’ would do them. lol (that’s the control freak speaking). I am embracing God’s bigger dream!

    • LOL Detra! I understand completely. One step at a time…your obedience will take you to places you never dreamed of!

  2. Girl… this this hilarious because I really have no clue as to what God is doing. I just know he has me all messed up. I’m listening to you on the call today and the funny thing is I have no problem speaking but coaching…that’s another story and that is exactly what God has me doing. YES… one step at a time because that’s all he will allow me to take without getting ahead of Him and myself.

    • LOL. Being just a speaker would be too easy. 🙂 For His glory He will call you to the unfamiliar or that which is uncomfortable. Just keeping taking one step at a time.

      • Yes!!! That’s all I can take because this right here is crazy. I can’t remember feeling so inadequate but being so blessed at the same time. Some days I truly wonder of I’m where I’m supposed to be.

  3. After listening to the call this morning, I had to get out of the box. I started my first blog today and I’m very excited. The one thing I had surrendered to God is speaking in front of the congregation. I taught and direct children’s ministry and it wasn’t a problem, but in front of adults I get butterflies and sweaty palms. I know after the Fast I will be delivered, just keep me in prayer. Overall, the Fast is really blessing me and I praise God for it.
